About Smiths Advanced Metals

Stockholder | Distributor | Service Provider


Based in Biggleswade, Smiths Advanced Metals is a global supplier of high-quality engineering materials.

Formed in 1989, we have been operating successfully for 30 years and are an established specialist in the supply of high tech multi-metals and plastics to a variety of industrial markets.


Smiths Advanced Metals (SAM) was formed in 1989 with the simple aim of creating a world-class supplier of high-quality engineering raw materials to high technology industries. The belief at the outset was that there is a need for industries of all types and sizes to have access to a single reliable source for all engineering raw materials, the quality of which would be second to none, with facilities for physical preparation as close as possible to the customer's final requirement. What defines our business is our expertise in particular markets.


Market Expertise

Over the years SAM has become a key supplier into a wide range of high-technology markets which include Aerospace & Space, Chemical, Defence, Medical, MRO, Naval, Nuclear, Oil & Gas and Power Generation industries.



Smiths Advanced Metals Today

Today SAM is a part of Smiths Metal Centres Limited, and while retaining our core vision and beliefs from when we were established, we are able to use the buying power and resources of our parent group to further increase our capabilities.
